13. Update Some Products Data (i.e. Quantity and Price Values Only) and do not Change the Other Details During Import
Prepare the file to import with the main product data. It should contain the following columns:
- "Product ID"
- "Product Quantity"
- "Product Price"
- "Product Name"
- "Product description"
- "Category Path" etc.
Run the Import/Export Products wizard . On the "Import File Name" page specify the path to a file you want to use in importing.
Move to the next step and choose correct delimiters to separate the values in a file.
On the "Fields Delimiters and Additional Settings" step check the additional conditions for importing.
Then, select store view where the changes made during importing will be reflected.
The "Base Formats" page displays the main date and time format and basic separators used for numerical values.
Pay your attention to the "Assign .csv Columns to Database Fields" step of import process. You should link columns from a file you want to be updated to the relevant fields of your store database.
Note: only assigned data will be transferred or modified!
Do not forget to choose the identifier - SKU or ID. This helps Store Manager to recognize the data that is importing to the store database.
The "Preview" page allows you to see which data will be modified when the process is completed.
The next step - "Import Options" - allows to choose an action you want to perform with transferred data. In our example, the "Modify only" variant is selected.
Start import process with the [Import] button, and wait till you get the results on the summary step.
To be able to check modified data, open the "Products" page of Store Manager. There are the latest changes in the price values and product inventory. The other product details remain unchanged after import.
